Info, with all those tiny nodes hanging
everywhere like ornaments from
a paleo-Christmas tree on Terra Prima, can be
painfully slow to navigate.

On the other hand, if you get the "raw" file,
which is actually just a bunch of marked-up
text, you can make a search for a term using
your everyday search-mechanism, and find every
occurence of that term in the entire body
of documentation.
